Once the case has been created in CRM, We move the case to a particular queue manually or automatically with the help of Route Queue functionality which is available OOB .  The main advantage of adding case to queue is that the concerned team would work on that case and it gets resolved by the concerned people. To Pick the queue items from the queue, Microsoft has provided OOB Pick button on the queue. This will automatically assign the case to that particular user.    The key thing which I want to share with you is once the queue item i.e. Case is picked from the queue, the ...

Sample code _serviceProxy.Execute(new PublishXmlRequest             {                 ParameterXml = @"                     <importexportxml> ...

The VARK theory says that you have a primary learning style. While you may be influenced by other learning styles, there is one primary area where learning comes easier. Understanding these four key ways adults learn can help us to plan and deliver useful, lasting CRM training to our end users. Visual ...
